    Mr. Pink, I'll post some pics/weights later
    JRD, yes and that is the only color, I can send you a swatch. Its a great fabric, best I have seen of the calvary twills from any mill.

    What's the back rise on a size 34 Panta?

    I find about 17 to 17.25 works best.

    I'm sure that would work. Weight is not listed on the site. Heavy stuff

    Is the website representative of the true color of the fabric?

    I can see the pictures. I'm asking if the colors in the flesh are the same as the website. A picture doesn't answer the question.
